The conference was held on Friday morning at the Olympic Palace.
Specifically, in his speech at the conference, Panierotatos, in front of dozens of students, referred to the race of the cultivation of sports as a high ideal.
“Christ will put in heaven, those who fight. Those who overcome will be judged if they really deserved the victory and possibly inherited the kingdom of heaven. But surely, the sure skywalkers, the sure sharers of the kingdom of god, the ones who will surely save their soul immortal in the ages, are the ones who know how to fight.
I think this is the message you should take. from sports. The journey of effort and struggle is more valuable than victory.”
